Adam + Hayley

We had such an awesome day Saturday. The weather was wonderful and the location was just beautiful. I was thrilled with the location of the Herrington Inn & Spa in Geneva, what a gem along the Fox River. It was such a pleasure for me to share this day with Hayley, Adam and their family and friends. The love and happiness among everyone made it easy for me to capture some great moments, thanks again for an awesome day and congrats!!!!

Tara + Dave

I am so looking forward to Tara and Dave's big day this July. We had a lot of fun strolling around their neighborhood of Lincoln Square, as well as, Montrose Harbor. There were a few hot spots we hit including where Dave proposed. I could tell this area was very special to them and I was glad to be able to capture their happiness there! Thanks you two for a 'Rock Star' session! Oh and one more plug, I can't help but mention Dave's the drummer of the PCBigots, be sure to check them out!!!

Tony + Miranda :: Lake Geneva Wedding Photography

Where do I begin. Miranda and I met in Kindergarten and we have been friends ever since. I have also known Tony for many years, as he has been a great friend of Miranda's family. I was blessed to be able to capture this special day for the two of them. We managed to dodge the rain (for the most part) and with their trust in my vision ended up with some great shots out by the water. The two picked a beautiful little church in downtown Lake Geneva, WI celebrating afterwards at the Lake Lawn Resort on Lake Delavan. Thank you again for an awesome time and letting me be a part of your big day!

Julia + Oliver

Julia and Oliver are always so fun to hang out with. I have known the two of them for a while now and do a lot of work for Julia. You might recognize her gorgeous floral work if you take a look through the archives on my blog. All of the shoots were for her website: Julia Rosa Floral Design, but this time I was honored to capture the engaged couple! We started out in their condo with their amazing view then ventured around to a few of my favorite spots in the West Loop area.

Leslie + Sergio

Leslie and Sergio had a perfect afternoon for portraits on Sunday. We took a walking tour of the city, which I think will count for at least a few days of exercise!! But it was so fun getting to know these two. They are Texas natives and planning a wedding back home next year. It was my pleasure to capture their new stomping ground of Chicago for them to share with their family and friends. Have fun at the wedding and I hope our paths cross again soon!
